Sofia Coppola Makes History by Becoming the Second Woman to Win Best Director at Cannes

The Indiewood filmmaker wins big with ‘The Beguiled.’

Arguably one of Indiewood’s favorite filmmakers, Sofia Coppola took home gold at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival by winning the prestigious Best Director award.

Honored for her remake of 1971 film The Beguiled, which stars the likes of Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning, Coppola is the second female director in history to ever receive the prize. The last woman who won the same award was Soviet filmmaker Yuliya Solntseva, for her movie Chronicle of Flaming Years (1961).

Coppola, whose previous work includes The Virgin Suicides (1999), Lost in Translation (2003) and the Emma Watson-fronted The Bling Ring (2013), has been famously known for making female-focused movies. Her new drama film, The Beguiled, tells the tales of a group of secluded women in 1864 Virginia, whose lives are completely disrupted upon the discovery of an injured soldier.

Stay tuned as The Beguiled is set to hit cinemas on June 23.
